I'll admit he is playing much better than last year. But he is not the goalie he was two years ago. The media seems reluctant to mention this...in fact they talk about glorious performances when I've left the Bell center thinking "we might have won if Garon was in nets".
Interesting because I was reading an old Sport Illustrated (from before the season started) and they have Theodore ranked as the number 8 goalie in the league which is about right. I also beleive that Theodore is overated by the Montreal media but on the same token I do beleive he's a good goalie. Also in the SI magazine Garon was mentioned as having a greater upside to Theodre comparing him to Patrick Roy.
